11:37 am
what kind of mindless advisor would urge him in that direction? he has reached a point of desperation. now the republicans coming forward and give hard-working americans the same break. it is simple basic fairness. the republicans have seen the high grounds of fairness. it may be unfamiliar territory, but they have seized it. i think it will be, ultimately, the reason they prevail. to eliminate is a matter of fairness.
11:38 am
the subsidies for congress and white house staffs, it is absolutely appropriate. republicans will prevail. it is utter, peter nonsense. it is all about numbers. this government still brings in more money. until that inverts, there is no possibility of default other than a consciously irresponsible deplorable act by the administration to make that decision.
11:39 am
connell: because of the president or other things? lou: it is difficult to tell. i guess we could rely on the old serviceable's. i think more likely that this is a market that is trading relatively thin. i am sure he will give us the reason why they are not even going to discuss the default again. what may be unexpected to many of you, they will prevail in

republicans, quote, obsession with the dismantling obamacare. republicans putting the blame on the president. with the shutdown in its third day no clear short-term fix in sight. rich edson is on capitol hill following every vote, every meeting, every twist, and return. where are we at this hour? rich: congress back in session, the house will pass some piecemeal proposals that's fund certain parts of the government. democrats are saying fund the entire government, not just parts of it. this after the meeting and the white house, senate minority leader mitch mcconnell says it was a meeting at the white house for negotiation to decide whether or not they were going to have negotiation. basically a waste of time. when you look at what they are saying after the meeting after two days of a shutdown they are saying the same thing. >> if you hope to get out of this mess and end the republican government shutdown, get rid of the tea party direction.

work with us. help us reopen the government we can start negotiations today. >> all the house is asking for, they want a lot more but all they're asking for at this point is a level playing field when it comes to obamacare. that is the only thing standing in the way of the government opening back up. and it is a pretty reasonable request. >> there continues to be no indication on capitol hill or the white house of any change in the democrats's position or the republican position and appears as we move closer to the october 17th debt ceiling deadline these two negotiations may become one. the issue on that is republicans are trying to figure out what they can pass out of the house to attach to the debt ceiling as their opening offer. democrats say they refuse to negotiate. cheryl: rich edson live from capitol hill. thank you. dennis: for more on the shutdown

let's bring in democratic congressman from ohio and fox news contributor dennis kucinich. thanks for being with us. so far looks like the republicans are the irresponsible bad guys. how soon before america might start to think it's pox on both your houses, democrats and republicans and should democrats be worried about that at all? >> all-american as should be wary about a lack of confidence in the institution of government. ultimately this could weaken congress as an institution. markets have every reason to be concerned because markets rely on stability and predictability and we are seeing a lot of instability out of washington and inability to reach an agreement. dennis: for decades presidents and congresses that use things like funds and the funding is for that initiative to force changes in policies that already have been adopted. is this obamacare pushed vacated by the republicans, is it more than we have done in recent
12:05 pm
decades? >> the lot is in place, was affected waited quite some time ago, a big step happened this week, people signing up in the exchanges. i don't think there is going to be any way to dramatically change that no matter what someone's position is. what we are seeing is a stalemate, a classic stalemate brought about by an ideologically opposed actions and there is a point at which the american people have a right to expect partisans will put aside their differences for the greater good of the country. isn't interesting that we have goldman sachs which is too big to fail and the united states of america is not? we need to keep our eye on the bigger picture which is the reputation of the united states, its role for the people of the country, its role in the world. we could be approaching a defining moment october 17th.
12:06 pm
it could trigger a constitutional crisis. dennis: i hope we fix it rather fast. you talked about at some point a crisis you have to put aside partisan politics. i read a commentary in the wall street journal yesterday complaining president obama instead of being the president for all the people in this crisis has been as partisan as possible in favor of only the democrats. how do you respond to that? >> every player in this, the president and congressional leaders and members of congress have to be very careful not to increase the polarization which makes it even more difficult to come to resolution. dennis: a lot of polarizing comments going on here. do you think the president should cave and be willing to talk about changing? take off the tax on revenue for medical equipmentmakers, the president agreeing to the rail and forcing business for a year, we could make some changes, does he lose if he starts to negotiate?
12:07 pm
>> i remember what president kennedy said in an inaugural address, we should not negotiate out of fear but never fear to negotiate. there always has to be some give-and-take in government. that is the nature of it. i will say this. we have some structural problems that are not being addressed that are very big, bigger than the question of the budget and the debt and the structural problems relate to the way the monetary system is set up. in order to create money you have to go into debt and as you do that you are going to keep digging a hole and we have bigger questions that have to be faced with respect to the way the system is set up and of course this conflict we are seeing in washington right now doesn't always reflect on bigger questions but maybe it is time we started to do that. dennis: isn't the catastrophic implications that they blow this the reason why the system is self healing and of course they will work this out?
12:08 pm
>> not necessarily. i would not have bet that we would have failed to be able to meet the budget issues and create a partial government shutdown. the whole system should be set up to resolve those differences but now it is set up the way it is working is creating more differences and more inertia. this is a teachable moment for the american people about institution of government. what people have a right to expect are subtle differences using the system that is set up. when we go outside the system and involve outside groups and ideological approaches to the world we are losing sight of a pragmatic things that markets and the american people have a right to expect. get the deal done. dennis: let me tell you one last thing. i am not afraid. shutdown day 3, bring it. dennis kucinich. cheryl: looking at the markets, stocks are near their low for the day after the treasury department's storm warning that
12:09 pm
a credit default would be not only catastrophic but more damaging to stock markets and economy than the 2008 financial crisis. let's bring in two people who know about this, the senior macro economist at pnc financial services, dan shaffer of shaver asset management. you also say the government needs stability this was going to take the markets. they have. you are not surprised at all. >> i am not. it is just the beginning. what the government is doing is similar to ancient greece when the system came in that everyone was competing with each other where the olympic teams from and they are competing against each other in washington and ruining this country financially which is already on the brink of financial ruin. cheryl: a couple points from this report that was linked from treasury talking about what could happen, the debt ceiling deadline being met, the country going into default or the shutdown. permanent scars to the economy, household wealth will decline,
12:10 pm
could be worse than 2008. the united states treasury saying this.we will have jack l in the day with liz claman but the dollar is weak. they are not on this report. >> we have been for a government shutdowns before and we know how it will be resolved. we haven't been to the u.s. government not meeting its obligation on the debt. we don't know what is going to happen but the potential is for disaster and the treasury department is right to be concerned. i don't know if it will be worse than the 2008 financial crisis but has the potential to be. cheryl: and also the dollar could weaken. the value of the dollar. that will have -- the only thing i can see is commodities if this goes down. >> these commodity models are based on a rate of return which is usually u.s. treasury. and every model. and if you don't have it would debase your models on so now was
12:11 pm
one of volatility starts to pick up like we had in the 70s, we were in the inflationary environment and now we go to a deflationary depression and everything will be all over because confusion is going to take over. cheryl: you can't make the argument that the u.s. economy was rebounding. maybe you can but it doesn't seem like you look at unemployment, consumer confidence. >> the economy is expanding and growing butted disappointing pace of growth. five years in to the recovery we are down by two million jobs, the unemployment rate is down about 7%, we have a small business survey, businesses are still not back to where they were in terms of optimism about the economy so we have many economy that is healing but this would be a huge setback. cheryl: we are not going to get the jobs report for tomorrow. how are we feeling about that? you are rolling your eyes. >> that is what i do. i look at data every day and when it is not there i don't know what to do with myself.
12:12 pm
tells us where the economy is going. we got unemployment insurance claims today but if we don't get the weekly jobs report that is what the federal reserve is looking at some makes their decision more difficult so this is a real problem for economists and policymakers. cheryl: i am sure ben bernanke and the gang at the fed is thinking the same thing. ben bernanke has been critical of congress, cannot be happy. >> he knew something was coming when he said no tapering which he couldn't take her anyway but the fact there is no data, data driven markets, not that there is no date but will be all over the place and we are seeing that today and this is the early stages of what could really happen. cheryl: what will we do at 8:30 tomorrow morning? what will we do with ourselves? >> watch the market go lower. cheryl: okay. their forecasts. >> i will be doing some stress testing for the bank, that is something we're working on the bible be busy with so is a productive use of my time. gerri: more fun to go to the dentist in a moment and watch

the markets open tomorrow. thank you very much. great to see you as always. dennis: what is bugging me? the panic mongers. politicians of both parties trying to stoke panic among the people in this government shutdown. the dire warnings people will go hungry, recession could descend, unwanted babies will be conceived, our shores won't be defended. really we are going to be just fine. our president has raised the art of peddling panic to height. he speaks of paychecks delayed in small businesses getting hurt, vital services at risk seniors and veterans and women and children. why is it always the women and children? are we on the titanic? democrats and republicans say the full faith and credit of the united states may be at risk with catastrophic consequences. they are not sitting down to a verdict so it must not be that much of a threat at all. it all has a hollow ring by now.
12:14 pm
the sequester came, we were told to brace for crisis and the union held intact. wake up, washington. we don't need government to live our daily lives, to eat and work and play. we are better off without it so stay shutdown as long as you want, see if we even care. what do you guys think? are politicians stoking panic in the government shut down? take it. cheryl: a lot happening. at this point planes are still flying, airports are open, but there are warning the government shutdown may threaten air travel. we have details when we go on the road coming. dennis: we are number one in oil and gas production beating russia. phil flynn is cheering on from the cme next. as we do every day at this time let's look at energy. when we made our commitment to the gulf, bp had two big goals:

12:36 pm
in general considered a luxury in that if consumers get concerned they would perform on a sector like yours. we didn't see that in the recession. and a shutdown of the government's, affect your customers. >> it is not helping. you could argue that apparel outperformed in 2012. that is not the case in 2013 to the degree people are spending money, strong electronics sales and the apparel has been not as great. the situation in washington not helping. a lot of people going on unpaid leave not helping either but that is one thing but even before that the outlook was not necessarily as exciting as it was. cheryl: and the launch of obamacare, something they have been shaking in their boots about, we have seen a couple years now. that is a factor. >> some retailers moved to go to
12:37 pm
part-time, and obamacare or no obamacare the health-care system has been in trouble and we were a privately held company with increase of 15% for 5 or six years, is obamacare helping? probably not. the situation was broken before so hard to blame that. cheryl: everyone is going public. michael scores advance the couple in years and everyone in fashion wants to go public. would you consider it? >> i think we may be early in the cycle. the ip 0 was such a success they have done an amazing job of brilliant management and can argue fashion people are wonderful in terms of understanding finance and housing but everyone seeing how successful it is. and everybody says he is

12:43 pm
lot of international influx into the united states so it is on international front where most of the concern is. dennis: this shutdown comes at the shoulder season in the travel industry to get people -- is that a good thing or bad thing? what is with this phrase shoulder season? >> the news is good and bad depending who you are and where you are. shoulder season naturally be find the period, a slowdown in travel, we see better deals during this peer go until we head to the holidays. what we are seeing in the northeast, opportunities happening right now, look at maine or arcadia in the last day or two, states like new york pumping out some pretty aggressive marketing reminders that these national parks and landmarks are shutdown, plenty
12:44 pm
more to see or do. arlington, alexandria, va. 30% bump in foot traffic, a lot of d.c. tourists looking at alexandria to visit instead. interesting number, 30% bump in foot traffic and a lot of the smithsonian museums are shutdown. uptick in foot traffic. people looking at alternatives. though generally the national -- the biggest hit looking at a thirty million peer day loss as long as this continues. there are other entities seeing a bit of a bump. dennis: i remember in the sequestered at a a suspended air-traffic control people, congress came under criticism and passed a measure, how come the air traffic control guys didn't get furloughed in this shutdown as they did in the
12:45 pm
sequestered? >> the faa did some prioritizing. they did furlough a third of their work force, a 13,000 are furloughed, they get the critical employees in place which is the air-traffic controllers, the equipment, maintenance folks, accident investigators but 13,000 people including 3,000 aviation safety inspectors are not working, trainers are not on the clock. they shifted some non critical personnel of the way, and that the essentials personnel in place. if we drag this out over several weeks, schedulingwhy is, something has to give. dennis: won't last several weeks. this will be over but very capably and knowledgeably handles, thanks for being with us today. looking for the best. cheryl: time for stocks and one day for stocks down 160 points let's go to the floor of the

stock exchange and david williams of strategic gold joining us. i got to tell you there are headlines from the fed president and we heard from the treasury saying the dollar is going to continue to be under pressure. what is going on with the contract? we are 13-16. >> very strange occurrence, starting to shut down and you see a rally in gold and it faded. there was a nice large rally that got this 1335, today is changing again so it is acting, the reverse of what you would expect each day so in the long term it is fine because the cost of production of gold is $1,300 an ounce. we are at the bottom of that range but when it comes to things like the fed and the dollar you would think it would act little stronger and it is not at this point. cheryl: is an interesting day and it is surprising. thank you so much.
12:47 pm
